London Joinery Services explains the process of repair


Sash Window Repair London

Original wooden sliding sash windows provide properties with unmatched period charm and character. But they often come with the downside of draughts, rattling, rot, rain ingress, and heat loss. 

The good news is that the replacement of old sash windows is, in many cases, completely unnecessary. With the right knowledge and tools, most damage and decay can be repaired, giving your sash windows a new life with improved performance.

London Joinery Services deploys experienced joiners for sash window repair and refurbishment across London. Our service focuses firstly on window repair and secondly on upgrading their performance. 


The Repair and Restoration Process

Our door and window repair services are of excellent quality and value, but we will only recommend them to you if we believe they represent a good long-term investment. If your timber door or windows are beyond repair, we will transparently recommend partial or full replacement as needed. 

Also known as sliding sash or vertical sliders, traditional sash windows rely on a weighted system that allows the heavy sashes to lift and fall with ease. In order for the sashes to move in the box and operate smoothly, there is a 3mm gap between the sash and the frame which is often the cause of draughts, rattles, dust and rain ingress, and heat loss. Additionally, use over time and timber decay can also exacerbate these problems.  

If our expert joiners believe that your sash windows can be repaired, they will do so by using the following process: 


  1. Windows are carefully removed from the window frame.

  2. If necessary, the glass is removed so old putty can be scraped away.

  3. Any decaying timber in the units, frame, or sill is routed out to expose the ‘sound’ timber.

  4. Joints are cleaned and any rotten wood is routed out.

  5. Occasionally, new timber is spliced in or replaced where the existing timber is beyond repair.

  6. Cavities are filled with our unique epoxy resin, which is molded to match the existing profile of the timber.

  7. The sash and frame are sanded and primed.

  8. The windows are upgraded by fitting a Brush Parting Bead and a draught-proof Sealing System.

  9. Windows are finished and painted with Dulux Weathershield Exterior paint.

  10. Old sash cords or chain and pulleys are replaced, new hardware is fitted, and the sashes are correctly balanced to ensure smooth operation of the windows.
